Shannon Lay "August"

Shannon Lay has shared the title-track off her forthcoming release August, available on August 23rd via Sub Pop. I will live my life the way I want to live it and only accept the opportunities that bring me joy. Music has become something that feels much bigger than I am. I fully embrace the immensity of it all and will grow with it every day.” Says Lay.

The full-length was recorded with her longtime friend, musician Ty Segall at his home studio lay shared that “I believe whoever you record with tends to affect the mood of music and Ty really brought this jovial sense that I hadn’t really explored yet.” “Once you get rolling with him, he just throws these ideas at the wall. And you’re like, ‘I would never have thought of that!’ I couldn’t have hoped for a better guide and energy to help create this record.”

Shannon will be playing an album release show at Pico Union Project on August 24th before embarking on an 18-date North American tour opening for Mikal Cronin. This run will begin on November 8th in Portland at Mississippi Studios and end on December 1st in San Diego at the Casbah. Shannon will continue as a special guest performing with Cronin in Europe beginning on February 10th – 29th.
